Both was rather simple conversions, which only required me to snap of the peg, file the back even, reglue the peg (with a pin) and reorient the cockpit..

Hey all I've been at it again. When I got a 3rd B-wing I decided to paint them up as Blue Squadron so went with a mix of rebel style banding and picking out panels around the cockpit

Anyone considering modding the orientation of their b-wing should at least take a look at this method:

Rob, do you have silicone and washers under your ship bases?

 

I like the idea of using the acrylic sheet over the play mat/surface, but I fear my ships might slide around to much.

I used to have washers and silicon rubber in all of my bases, but I switched over to squares cut out of a thin mousepad. Much neater, not sticky, and works just as good.

They didn't come out perfect, but I'm quite happy with the result!
